Located at Cipete Raya str, south Jakarta..which crowd with resto. Fortunately Sambara has large enough parking area. Here we can find many kind of sundanese foods..just take a look then choose what you want to eat and they will serve you every food you order in small bowl. The taste was just average but atmosphere was good enough.
